Post surgery: Although you considered the surgery successful, it appears that your symptoms, if they weren't present posoperatively, are related to some degree of diaphragm laxity allowing reflux and regurgitation. I feel that collaboration between the surgeon and a gastroenterologist will be required to figure out the cause of your symptoms and a treatment plan.
